The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures—I mean books!
The weather has been wacky (we actually got snow yesterday—and it stuck!) and the news has been… well, we all know how heartbreaking the war in Ukraine is. I haven’t been sleeping well, and then we lost an hour last night, due to the start Daylight Savings Time, so I’m tired today. But we had a very good Spinners and Weavers Guild meeting yesterday (on Zoom), and I’m reading a new-to-me author I really like. And a family member adopted two kittens this week and has been sending us adorable photos and videos, which has really lifted my spirits.

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching
Reading: I went on a Celia Lake binge this week. She’s a new author I discovered last summer; she writes gentle, slow-paced, thoughtful historical fantasy romance. I read Eclipse (book #3) last summer, and decided this week that her books were just what I was in the mood for in my current bouts of insomnia… so I bought the rest of the series. So far, I have read Carry On and The Fossil Door, reread Eclipse, and then read Fool’s Gold. I started The Hare and the Oak this weekend. And it’s been good for my Goodreads challenge; I’m three books ahead of schedule!
Listening to: I’m listening Index, a History of The, which I am thoroughly enjoying. I’m really glad I have a print version to look at after I finish a section, both for the occasional illustrations and examples, and so I can see all the names and foreign words. I’m not at all sure the narrator is pronouncing the Latin properly, so it helps if I look at it afterward.
Watching: Star Trek: Discovery Season 4; Foyle’s War Season 6; Partners in Crime (the 1980s version, with Francesca Annis and James Warwick.)
Added to the Hoard this week

A new Lady Darby– I love her! I have one book to read before this newest one but I’ll be on the lookout for it. The Elizabeth Lim cover is stunning! Have a wonderful week ahead with your knitting and reading.

Daylight savings is tough! I’m glad we’re on spring break this week so I can adjust. The historical fantasy series sounds lovely. Glad you are enjoying it!

A Wolf for a Spell looks interesting. I need to head to the library soon.

I’m not happy about Daylight Saving Time today either. I wish “they” would just spring forward and then never fall back again. It’d be so much before on our health. How fun about the two new kittens. I love kittens and cats. 🙂

Ugh DST I prefer gaining an hour to losing but wish they just left it alone. We’ve had 85F and last night 20F. I’d just like to stay in the middle. Happy reading on all those new books.

The time change always screws up my internal clock lol and I’m sure this time will be no exception.
I’m looking forward to trying Huber’s books one of these years!

Kitten pictures and new authors can be great mood boosters!

I’m loving both. The kittens are adorable—makes me miss having cats of our own.
Sweet kitten photos are the best <3! DST really chose a bad time this year – I, like you, was already struggling with my sleep. I hope you're finding peace and rest this week! I know it's hard with all that's going on in the world.

Between work and current events, I’m not sleeping well at all (but I’m getting more reading done due to the lack of sleep. Silver linings?) I hope you, too, can find some peace and rest!
I hope you like Psalm for the Wild Built! I loved it. Have a great week!

I’m looking forward to it… after I finish the audiobooks I’m in the middle of, perhaps.
